Philippine Navy’s Gregorio Del Pilar-class frigate BRP Gregorio Del Pilar (FF15) is currently at Zamboanga City Pier for an open house today, December 11 until 5pm.
The open house which started yesterday aims to “showcase its capability as a Frigate as well as to give opportunity to the populace of Zamboanga City for a guided tour aboard ship,” Naval Forces Western Mindanao said.
“The arrival of BRP Gregorio Del Pilar is aimed to promote peace, develop friendly relations and bring the Philippine Navy and the Armed Forces of the Philippines closer to the hearts of the Zamboanguenos and of the Filipino people in general,” it added.
BRP Gregorio Del Pilar (FF15) is the first Del Pilar Class ship of the Philippine Navy which was commissioned last December 14, 2011.
It was also the second ship named after the revolutionary general, Gregorio Del Pilar, during the Battle of Tirad Pass.
